Gabon is incredibly green. There are many national parks to choose from here with an impressive array of wildlife on offer. Don’t forget the gorgeous white-sand beaches, epic landscapes and neverending rivers in this relatively untouched part of Africa. The only downside of all this beauty that is waiting right there in Gabon is the total lack of reliable infrastructure set up to get you there. The roads are poor and transport options are dismal. To put it bluntly, Gabon is expensive for the independent traveller. If you really want to explore all that Gabon has to offer, be prepared to part with some serious cash. Don’t miss the two largest cities of Libreville and Port-Gentil to enjoy some good food and balmy weather.
